Main Aims

  • To provide practice of object pronouns in the context of films from the United States and Egypt.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide detailed and gist reading practice using a text about romance in films in the context of American and Egyptian cinema.


Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

T will set lesson context by providing images of the classic American film "Ghost" and discussing the images with Ss, eliciting target language and testing knowledge of student awareness of object pronouns.

Pre-teach Vocabulary (2-4 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

Before engaging in the first activity, T will pre-teach essential vocabulary in the exercises to prime students for using object pronouns: die/death, psychic, ghost, love.

Exercise 1A/1B (5-7 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

Ss will read the text and answer which subject applies to the object pronouns highlighted in the text. T will demonstrate the first two and ask "are we finding verbs?". At the end, class will check with an answer key.

Exercise 1C (5-7 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

Ss will use a word bank to fill in the missing object pronouns with their corresponding subject pronouns. T will demonstrate the first one and clarify instructions: "are we writing sentences?" At the end, class will check with an answer key.

Written Record (5-7 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

T will take example sentences from the text, write them on the board, and demonstrate subjects, verbs, and object pronouns to students, preparing them with drills and elicitation of the necessary vocabulary. This follows the Written Record of Guided Discovery.

Exercises 2A/2B (5-7 minutes) • To concept check further and prepare students for free practice

T will demonstrate Exercise 2B by providing local examples of famous people that Ss do/do not like, hate/love, or do/don't know. Then, an open pair will be used. After, students will swap to Exercise 2A and will write in the prompts what kind of actors/actresses and pop groups they know. Clarify instructions: "are we writing names?"

Exercise 4C (TB) (5-7 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

T will demonstrate activity with the class in open pairs. After, T will hand out worksheet, instructing students to write their favorites. When finished, T will instruct students to mingle and share with the class their answers in English. Clarify: "Are we working in pairs?"
